The Very Best Jan & Dean's Greatest Hits

"As a youngster I collected most of Jan & Dean's LP releases.
Since CD started I always wanted to have a "greatest hits"
album by Jan & Dean. I tried many of those available but
unluckily they either have only a few with the rest as fillers-
up, mostly bad ones, or lots of nonsense with chats between
alternate takes that do not have any interest. Finally in 1998
a Dutch record company - Disky - compiled a series of "The
Original" dedicated to many other 60's & 70's artists. Most of
them are real treasures like this one. Original stereo cuts
and the best possible selection among so many Jan & Dean songs.
They've picked out 2 or 3 hits from each charted LP and they
did not include any of those "bad" recordings with which they
filled up their later LP's like covers of folk and protest songs.
All but one- Beach Boys' Surfin' Safari - are charted hits
including the forgotten and underestimated "Batman" which has
never been included in any other compilation.
If you are looking for the best Jan & Dean songs, buy this
one because they are all there with the real original
